The building of a memorial in Pirnmill to soldiers who died in the First World War  is tantalisingly close to achieving its funding goal.

Fiona Laing has worked tirelessly to raise funds and only a further £2,000 is needed to construct a memorial in honour of the eight men from Pirnmill who died during the conflict. She will be hosting a second fundraising event in Pirnmill village hall this weekend.

With over 200 pictures of Pirnmill village since the early 1900s the event will see Fiona talking passionately about the lives that were lost and the history of the village and its occupants. Her first talk on the subject earlier in the week, which included refreshments and home baking, attracted a healthy amount of support and interest and the second event should be equally as popular and will appeal to those who were unable to attend the first talk during the week.

Entrance to the nostalgic event tonight (Saturday) at 7pm is by suggested donation of £5 per person and all proceeds will go towards the memorial construction which is scheduled for completion next year.
